Picking up where GA left off yesterday, but w/new emergency proposals for funding for port shutdown, including money for sister occupations which created [minor] controversy. Proposal to have GA at actions sparked conversation about what GA is for, how to implement idea, accessibility, but quorum lost, so tabled.
